Spiced Slow Roast Pork

Spiced Slow Roast Pork

Add a bit of spice to a traditional roast pork shoulder with this recipe

You will need

  • 4-4.5kg Boned, rolled and scored pork shoulder
  • 5 Thyme sprigs, leaves removed and chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp Smoked paprika
  • Zest and juice 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


Heat oven to 230C (gas 8). Mix all the ingredients (except the pork) in a small bowl, then rub all over the meat, getting inbetween the cuts in the skin

Lift the pork onto a wire rack in a roasting tin and place in the oven to sizzle for 30 mins

Reduce oven to 150C (gas2) and roast for a further 3 hours

If the crackling needs a final blast to get it crisp, turn oven back up to 230C (gas 8) for about 30 mins more

Remove the tin from the oven, cover loosely with a tent of foil and rest for at least 20 mins or up to 40 mins before carving
